    What has this bill got to do with your income? Fnding for S.3307 would come from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) under the stimulus bill. It's not like a new tax will be initiated to pay for it. Of course, you'll say the stimulus is wasted, big government spending. Still, it's not a direct assault on your earned income. So, as I've said to others who would rather repeat the same stall rhetoric and talking points, pick up the needle on that old 45 and move it to a new position. Your "get your hands outta my pockets" banter is getting old.

    While it's true that in most cases food stamp recipients do qualify for free lunches in public school, S.3307 would also expand entitlement to all foster children - you know, those children who have been abandoned or orphanned. You gonna let them starve, too? Surely, you're not that heartless?

    Yes...we are evil...and heartless...what could we be thinking...of COURSE it is the SCHOOLS job to feed 20+ million 'children' breajkfast, lunch, and dinner; and its the federal governments job to create 17 new departments and create grant programs with no definition of purpose or intent; its the federal governments job to takle care of every poor crippled and dependent pet that they have created. Of course...that they create them...manipulate them...use them for political power...keep them dependent...thats MUCH more caring. That the government already provides funding for those families to feed their children...no worries. That they provide money to take care of foster children (all of which are now included in the full meal deal program)...immaterial. That the federal government creates endless social programs and continue to dig us deeper in debt...that doesnt matter...and certainly not to people that wont be responsbile for paying off that debt...

    Evil I tell you...heartless.

    The irony...there is a reason this evil, heartless conservative bastard has just had to get dressed and is about to leave my home in the dead of night...

    Dude. Many, MANY posts ago, Oscar and a few other people said that kids SHOULD go without, if their parents cannot provide for them. I don't give a damn about the OP. I, where you quote me, am reacting to those posts.

    REPUBLICANS BLOCK OR CUT CRYATHON PART 1. (It's time we start counting how many times the Dems pull this ploy)

    This is the typical Lib strategy. Create some mess of a buy-a-vote program and then attack Republicans when they want to cut or eliminate it, or as Danarhea notes below, twist the basic argument out of proportion.

    I say cut the whole program. Since when is federal government responsible for feeding school children? Where is this bit of socialism found in The Constitution?

    Isn't that the role of the parents? Their most basic responsibility? To feed, cloth, and protect? This is $4.5 billion we could cut and return to the taxpayers.

    They might. But I'd like to see the Democrats say, "OK, add that" and find out. THEN it would be fine to blame the Republicans, solely.

    Re: Republicans block child nutrition bill

    Growing up, my mom and dad divorced, he didn't pay child support and my mom was struggling to make ends meet. Discounted lunches and sometimes free meals helped out greatly. Shame on some of you for making this bill sound evil.

    When the ones that think this is socialist or unconstitutional or some other horse **** like Moses brought the constitution and US laws down from Mt. Sinai, take a moment and do this for me:

    Think about why you disagree with having a bill that helps pay for school lunches and then say out loud, "I think this bill is socialist and bad for kids." If WHILE you are saying this it sounds like you are trying to get the taste of **** out of your mouth then you probably are an asshole.
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan
